SARAH SPEAKS: ON LOVING YOUR BODY
Photography by Peter Audu
Do you ever have moments when you absolutely love your body? And then other moments when you don't really like what you see? Well I do. These shots were taken last year while I was visiting Thailand, but I never posted them because I didn't like the way my body looked. Growing up, I wasn't exactly thin but neither was I fat. I was never really happy with my weight though, especially since I didn't have a flat tummy. All that changed when I joined the fitfam in 2013 and I was consistent for over a year. But now it's getting harder and harder and I'm at that point where I have to force it. I may be struggling with my weight now but it's okay.
I've learnt to accept my body for what is, while still working on toning my muscles and shedding some extra pounds. I'll always be an inner fatty but this just means that I'll have to work harder to stay in shape because I love food and it shows when I neglect my workouts. At the end of the day you've just got to keep pushing because "if you don't like something about yourself, change it and if you can't change it, learn to accept it".
This is something I would have worn back in the day. I say back in the day because at the moment I prefer my skirts below my knees. And no this is not a dress, it's two separate pieces, see the importance of closet basics? Though it seems I have a way of making you think I have more dresses, remember this look here, here and here.
Would you rock this look?
Thought I'd start a new series to share my thoughts on the blog. I'm still not so sure of the title "Sarah Speaks" any suggestions?
